Retailers drop price of Nintendo 3DS one day early

updated 01:20 pm EDT, Thu August 11, 2011

Walmart, Target, Best Buy drop 3DS price early

Nintendo's significant price drop of its 3DS console that's scheduled to go live tomorrow is being pre-empted by some retailers. This includes retail Walmart and Target stores in the US, though the web pages for the portable games console do not yet reflect the change. In Canada, Best Buy and Costco have already dropped the price to $170 from $250, which is a 30 percent price drop.

To make the price drop less painful to current owners in the US of the console, Nintendo offered 20 free downloadable games by the end of day today, August 11. They need to sign up to the Ambassador program through Nintendo's eShop, however. Whether those who buy the reduced console today are eligible for this as well isn't confirmed, but likely.
